Roy Hill: Your Labour Candidate Devon County Council Elections 2013
It was with great pleasure that I accepted the Labour Party nomination to be their candidate for the Alphington & Cowick ward for the Devon County Council election to be held in May 2013.
I was born in Exeter and have lived West of Exe since 1970, representing St Thomas ward for 14 years on Exeter City Council. I have lived in the Alphington ward and now live in Cowick. I had the honour to be both Mayor and Deputy Mayor of our City and in 2007 was made a Honorary Alderman.
During the coming months I look forward to meeting many of you and introducing myself properly. I will be out and about regularly in the ward and will try to speak to as many residents as possible, but please don’t hesitate to contact me or if you have an issue you think I can help with.
